You are the marketer, geriatric care manager, data entry person and billing clerk. You play all the instruments in your orchestra.
As you grow you will hit a wall and your one-woman orchestra will start to sound screechy.

When will you have to hire a geriatric care manager to replace you.
1. When your financial forecast tells you when you will make a profit you need to hire a geriatric care manager
2. When your caseload exceeds over 7 heavy care cases plus light and medium so that you cannot give enough time to these complicated cases to do an excellent job and keep your clients.
3. When you yourself as director are overwhelmed, on the point of burnt out and doing a dropping many of the plates you have to keep spinning in the air
